Questions We Ask Every Time We Read the Bible:

1. What do the verses say?
2. What's the backstory? What's the context?
3. What does it mean? What are the principles of this passage?

Romans Week One: Romans 1:16-17; 25

1. What Does This Passage Say?
In the opening of this great letter of the Apostle Paul, we get a vision for what the gospel really means. This gospel is righteousness, by faith, and is the power of God for life. But, what is the problem in the world? “They exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator.” (v. 25)

2. What’s the Backstory?
Paul is doing ordinary pastoral problems and challenges. In the midst of that, he gives us a detailed and thoughtful doctrinal statement on what really matters. We often separate the doctrine & belief from the everyday reality. But what if we chose to see this great gift of salvation as 100% relevant to our everyday life?

3. What Does It Mean?
The gospel is the power of God, and it is for the Jews and Gentiles – it is not for just one people group. It is about and for the world.

4. What Does It Mean for Me?
If someone turned to you and asked you: “Why do you follow Jesus?” “How are you different than me?” “What is grace really?” What would you say? That is what is ahead!
